How do you rate the bluefish run last season??? We had a push of gators in the spring, then they settled on the deeper reefs during the summer. The fall run we had some great action of small to medium size bluefish blitzing on top. Hope this is a sign of a good run this season.

The dog days of summer do not exist in CT. Our largest stripers of the season are caught in August when big bass take up summer residency in cooler waters. If you want to target summertime cow stripers book your trip today!

Nothing better than sunrise stripers. Do you believe in the first cast curse?

Trip planner: Connecticut has a phenomenal summer time fishery. Large stripers take up summer residency in July and we consistently catch big striper on live bunker and eels. We also have an abundance of gator bluefish and black sea bass on the reefs.

Swipe right to see my Humminbird Apex screenshot that shows stripers feeding on schools of juvenile butterfish and silversides. These fish were feeding on a reef in about 45 feet of water. This is when small profile lures catch well such as the 100 gram Shimano North America Fishing current sniper jig and small soft plastics such as Lunker City® 5 3/4” Fin-S paired on a 1 oz Titan HD jig.

This was the last big striper of 2023, caught on a live bait away from the “run and gun” crowds. Big fish will sit on structure and take a live bait many times but will not compete with smaller fish to chase small bait fish on the surface which requires too much energy for a small amount of food.

This cow bass was covered in sea lice indicating that it was an ocean migratory fish. We typically see these big bass covered in sea lice show up in June.

Another big striper taken during a hot 3-way bite. This is the go to method to drift live baits in water over 20 feet deep using a Shimano North America Fishing Trinidad 14a, G. Loomis 904CMF, PowerPro 50lb, 60lb SPRO USA flouro leader, 2/0 3-way swivel and Gamakatsu USA 6/0 Octopus circle hook. Adjust sinker weight as current dictates.

Jim with a cow bass that took a live bunker head first. On the initial take a striper hits the bunker in the mid body first and then swallows it head first. If you reel in a bait after a hit, most likely it will be missing scales in the mid body, indicating that you pulled the bait too quick.
